    Massachusetts police are investigating after a body was found Monday morning near a donation bin outside a Salvation Army store in Worcester.

    Authorities said the body was located near the bin on 72 Cambridge St. just before 10 a.m.

    Police have not said whether foul play is suspected but did say the medical examiner has been contacted.

    "It's just so devastating that something like this happened," said Liz, a Salvation Army worker. "When I walked into the office, someone told me what happened, I thought they were kidding around, I thought they were joking."
